We Understand Resident Care
We put care centers and assisted living centers and their residents FIRST. Barnes Healthcare Mgmt.’s services are exclusive to care center and assisted living center residents. We understand the comprehensive, full needs of the care centers and assisted living centers as well as their residents. Often care centers and assisted living centers struggle to obtain appropriate care for their residents; care centers and assisted living centers aren’t first on the list for physician visits.
Residents do not suffer until their physician arrives; they are given immediate attention. We understand care center and assisted living center staff cannot provide the treatment your residents need without strict orders. We provide a constant connection for your nurses to contact with questions, concerns or inquiries about follow-up orders. We know resident care is your first priority, so we make it ours as well.
Following Quality Assurance Format
Dr. Eric Barnes, acting Medical Director at Barnes Healthcare Mgmt., brings leadership, guidance and quality control to care centers and assisted living centers. Having attended many ALJ hearings, Dr. Barnes understands the quality assurance format, resolving issues before they become reported complaints.
Dr. Barnes stays ahead of the curve, fully comprehending the ever-changing care center and assisted living center regulations and rules. Having experience with all survey regions in the area, Dr. Barnes has formed working relationships with surveyors providing networking conducive to successful complaint resolution.
Narcotic Drug Management
Tracking System Safety
Our extensive drug management service provides a secure manner to assure drugs are not being abused, stolen or mishandled. Barnes Healthcare Mgmt. staff is trained in narcotic drug management within care centers and assisted living centers and are aware of the ramifications you may face if proper control is not enforced. We act as safeguards, implementing tracking systems, to prevent over-administration of narcotic drugs.
Providing Prescription Regimen
Once a resident is admitted, their prescriptions are immediately tracked. Nurses have the ability to see what is being dispensed and when it is time for a prescription to be filled.
This convenient tracking system makes calling in prescriptions unnecessary; they are monitored and, in a timely manner, available for pickup at the pharmacy of your choice.
Contact Within Reach
The Barnes Healthcare Mgmt. nursing triage is able to provide immediate resident care by providing a direct, immediate connection to a physician. Your residents will no longer needlessly wait until their personal physician was able to physically assess ailments. Your care center and assisted living center staff simply contacts us, explains the resident’s situation, or puts in an order, and action is taken immediately. Should the situation be more serious, your resident is put on the schedule to be seen ASAP.

Readmission Reduction Strategy
Support “Phone Tree”
Our experienced nursing triage helps to create a support system to avoid unnecessary hospital readmissions. We provide nurses a telemedical consult, assuring appropriate steps are taken and an educated decision has been made declaring hospital admission is the true and necessary resort.
In a case where an inexperienced nurse is perhaps uncomfortable handling certain medical circumstances, they can simply call and one of our trained nurses or doctors is capable of handling the situation until one of the nursing home’s more experienced nurses can be contacted.
